What people are saying about Mekong Delta

Beautiful puppet show, very unique and a must-see when in Vietnam! We loved the show which took about 45 minutes. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The cruise was lovely and the food was extremely tasty, but the time for the dinner was quite short, around 1 hour for 6 meals. Felt some kind of hectic, but in total, it was a very nice evening!

Our tour guide Lam was fantastic! I hope to book with him again on our next visit to Vietnam

Really great tour puppets were great and the dinner cruise was really good

Nice walk on the water, plenty and good food, and at a reasonable price

the puppet show is actually funny, cute and easy to understand
